Our start at this resort did not turn out as well as it had at Sunscape The Beach, however the end result was compariable. We waited for 3 hours for our room to be ready, however this was because we had to check out of Sunscape by noon and took a 10 minute cab ride to Secrets.
Basically we had a few drinks at the Lobby Bar, took a nap in the Lobby, then had lunch at a nearby restuarant.
We must say, however, the 3 hour wait was worth it. We were in room 14204 (Building 14), a honeymoon suite and was it beautiful. We had a view of the Ocean as well as the pool. Not only did we have the jacuzzi bath tub in the room, but we had a jacuzzi outside on an open porch. They also supplied us with two lounge chairs, two wooden chairs and a table for evening dinners on the deck to watch the sunset.
Once again we were greeted with beautiful towel art and tropical flowers. There was a yummy fruit basket as well.
We were so thrilled and had so much fun at this resort. They had activities going on all the time, we particularlly enjoyed the little contests by the pool. Wooden Horse Racing, throwing tennis balls through numbered holes, and frisbee bowling.
The beach at this resort was much nicer, it was raked daily and had little to no seaweed.
Carlos, the bartender at the deep end of the pool and Andrea one of the activities personnel were great. They made you feel welcome and liked to talk.
We met many people from our area, who would think you fly 3000 miles to meet people that live 2 hours from you.
All in all, it was a perfect honeymoon. Food was great, drinks were plentiful, staff was excellent.
